Fire Safety, Inc. Moves Its Main Office

It is with great pride we announce the opening of our new facility at #1 Helmkamp Drive in Wood River, IL. In doing so we have expanded our office, our warehouse, and have created what we have been told is one of the most modern and best equipped shops in the entire fire protection industry! Our ultimate goal is to be the best in what we do and are confident that this expansion will increase our efficiency and enable us to serve our customers well into the future.

We have come a long way from the basement of our founders Bob and Mary Stockers home in 1968, and are proud of the company that they built. We will continue the work of setting the standard for our industry and be the company that Mr. Stocker envisioned.
